CBI awarded $350m contract for new combined-cycle gas facility in Southeast

Chicago Bridge & Iron or CB&I (NYSE:CBI) said Aug. 10 that it has been awarded a $350m contract by a company, which it did not identify, for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of a 560-MW combined-cycle gas turbine power station located in the Southeastern United States.

CB&I identified the power plant developer only has a “leading electric power holding company.”

The project will utilize gas turbines capable of operating on a dual-fuel configuration that provides efficiency, reliability, and operational and fuel flexibility.

“CB&I has a long history of providing industry-leading experience in fossil power generation from the early stages of engineering and development, through procurement, fabrication, construction, operation and maintenance,” said Patrick K. Mullen, President of CB&I’s Engineering & Construction operating group. “CB&I is proud to help our customer ensure an affordable, reliable and cleaner energy supply for the future while providing the local community with a project that provides local jobs and values environmental stewardship.”

CB&I last year sold off its Stone & Webster nuclear plant construction business to Westinghouse Electric.
